Percy the Park Keeper helps his animal friends in this popular story from highly-regarded, best-selling author-illustrator Nick Butterworth. Includes a fabulous fold-out poster!Percy the Park Keeper always feeds the animals in the park where he lives. But one cold winter's night Percy discovers that his little friends need more than food and he must find a way to help them find a warm place to sleep for the night.Percy's hut is nice and warm but Percy discovers that if you invite one animal in you'll have to invite them all in and his hut is only small - it's certainly going to be a squash!
Nick Butterworth was born in North London in 1946 and grew up in a sweet shop in Essex. He now lives in the country with his wife Annette and they have two grown-up children, Ben and Amanda. The inspiration for the Percy the Park Keeper books came from Nick's many walks through the local park with the family dog Jake.
